Donor: Justin Flom
Dual Face Bueche Girod Watch
Jerry Lewis was an American comedian, director, actor, screenwriter, singer, humanitarian and producer. Nicknamed "The King of Comedy," Lewis is regarded as one of the most significant American cultural figures of the 20th century. He appeared and starred in 60 films, 13 of which were directed by him. Long before smart devices, Mr. Lewis was able to keep track of time in two different areas of the world with this dual time Bueche Girod quartz watch. Actually two watches in one, it comes with its original leather band and brass butterfly closure.
This watch was donated donated by world-renowned magician and friend of the Brian LaViolette Scholarship Foundation, Justin Flom.
The Brian LaViolette Foundation was formed by the LaViolette family to honor the memory of their son, Brian, who passed away in a swimming accident in Green Bay, Wisconsin when he was just fifteen years old in 1992. Brian was not only an excellent student, athlete, and musician, but he loved watches, starting his own collection when he was four years of age.
Since 1992, the Brian LaViolette Scholarship Foundation has presented 1,058 scholarships to deserving college-bound students in Northeastern Wisconsin, the United States, and other parts of the world. The Foundation continues Brian's legacy by helping high school seniors financially to achieve their educational dreams and, at the same time, providing them with encouragement and inspiration.
